And the layout is from Tina Aszmus' Planetarium Gallery:
We invited member Marie (MarieL) to choose one of these to use as a starting point this week, and she couldn't stop at just one!! She wowed us with both of the projects she submitted!!
Using the layout sketch:
Supplies: Cardstock (American Crafts); Pink Vellum (Recollections); Cut Design (Studio Calico: Atlantic Sail With Me); Wood Veneer Typewriter (Studio Calico); Tags (Crate Paper); Digital Word Stamp: (Ali Edwards: Spring
Hand Drawn Words @ designerdigitals); Calendar (Katie Pertiet @ designerdigitals); Butterfly Punch (Martha Stewart)
I really love how everything is centered vertically with a big bold title in the middle. I switched things up and put my journaling on the top half of the page and my photo on the bottom half. I wanted to use some transparent elements similar to the original page, so I took pink vellum paper and made a little pocket and a few butterflies. I don't normally use so much pink on my layouts, but I thought the color reflected spring and the cherry blossoms.
And this one with the card sketch:
Supplies: Cardstock (American Crafts), Washi Tape (Crate Paper: The Pier); Wood Veneer (Studio Calico); Tags (Crate Paper); Journal Shapes and cutouts: (Studio Calico Digital Printable: Planetarium #2)
I had a lot of fun using a card sketch for a layout. I made my page in landscape format (11x8.5") which is something I haven't done before, but I ended up liking it and will probably use it again. I thought the big circle would be perfect for a photo of my son playing in the creek with his cousins. The strips of paper on the right side turned into strips of washi tape on my layout. I used a plain white cardstock background and then added pops of bright, primary colors. Overall I followed the sketch pretty closely while making this layout. I will definitely remember to use a card sketch as a source of inspiration in the future.
